TurboApp allows clients with wholesale portfolios to seamlessly board new merchants directly to the Priority Payments processor.
You can start a new application from the TurboApp menu on the top navigation bar, or by clicking the Board Merchant button on the lead.
When you're starting a new application from the top navigation bar, you will need to enter all of the information and settings manually.
When you're boarding a merchant from a lead, then the lead field info will automatically populate into the TurboApp fields, based on the TurboApp field mappings.
Starting the TurboApp
To start a new and empty TurboApp application, navigate to TurboApp > New Application in the top navigation bar.
The New Application page will open as shown in the below example:
Select the appropriate options in the initial drop-down menus and click on the Start Application button to launch your new application.
Note: If you have multiple processor integrations enabled, then make sure to select Priority Payments in the first drop-down on the page.
The application process consists of several steps which take about 5 minutes to complete.
If needed, you can also save your application partially, and then come back to work on it later (using the Incomplete Apps button at the top of the page).
To start the TurboApp from the lead, click on the Board Merchant button in the Actions widget on the right side of the page:
